Oh my. This came from Missy and Dylan and as soon as I smelled the dry tea in the bag I knew I was saving it for tea party day.
I made a key lime pie from fresh key limes, cut up some fresh strawberries, and made a cookie plate as well.
This was the first tea I served and oh. my. goodness. This is so close to Dammann Freres’ Coquelicot Gourmand. This is a complex, elegant tea with such wonderful pastry flavors. This would be a great dessert all by itself, with nary a thing added. My guest absolutely loved it, hated the darjeeling we tried next, like the Keemun Hao Ya A, then asked for more of this!
This was a hit, and I am delighted that there is enough for one more whole pot!
Thank you, Missy and Dylan! My daughter is in Raleigh today and hopefully will have time to pick up the Asian Pear Green Tea I promised you!
